Serving patients seeking LASIK surgery in New York City and the surrounding areas
Dello Russo Laser Vision is the LASIK practice New York City patients trust for quality care and excellent visual outcomes. The practice was founded by Dr. Joseph Dello Russo in 1990 in Bergenfield, N.J., and within 10 years, three additional locations had opened their doors to serve Manhattan, Brooklyn and Long Island. Over the years, Dr. Dello Russo has played a pivotal role in introducing most of the advances in laser vision correction. Now, under the leadership of Dr. Dello Russo and his son, Dr. Jeff Dello Russo, Dello Russo Laser Vision helps patients throughout New York and Northern New Jersey enjoy better vision and a higher quality of life.
The team at Dello Russo Laser Vision has performed more than 160,000 LASIK procedures. LASIK and the other laser vision correction treatment options available at the practice (e.g., "no blade" LASIK and PRK) are short, virtually pain-free outpatient procedures. Recovery is rapid and many patients notice visual improvements almost immediately after surgery.
In addition to correcting refractive errors through LASIK and other vision correction procedures, Dello Russo Laser Vision offers cataract surgery — another short, outpatient procedure. Several types of advanced intraocular lenses are available to restore clear vision after cataract surgery.
More about LASIK at Dello Russo Laser Vision
LASIK is designed to correct refractive errors that cause nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, and to give patients freedom from glasses and contact lenses. Prior to the procedure, the patient's eyes are numbed to prevent any discomfort during the laser treatment. In a conventional LASIK procedure, the eye surgeon uses a small surgical instrument to create a tiny flap on the cornea. In newer, "no blade" procedures, a femtosecond laser is used to create the cornea flap. (The top layer of the cornea can also be completely removed.) After folding back the flap, the surgeon uses an excimer laser to carefully reshape the cornea and improve any abnormalities in the cornea's curvature. After reconfiguring the cornea, the eye surgeon restores the flap to its original position, where it naturally seals itself. The procedure takes 20 minutes or less, and shortly afterward the patient returns home to recover for the rest of the day. Many patients are pleased to discover they can see clearly without glasses or contacts as soon as the following day. Typical LASIK results are 20/20 or better.
